You guys (or gals) crack me up. I am one of the new guys on the block. I came to Aquarium Advice to learn more about the hobby I have been in for 4 years now. I have always utilized my LFS to maintain my tanks as they are located at my business. I started with a 30, then to a 75 and now moving to a cadillac Oceanic 175 bow. First overflow system I have owned. All told probably will have over 10K in it within 2 months. That's just for the setup--No LS or corals. With that kind of investment, I decided I wanted to take a more hands on approach and learn as much as I could about the hobby. Hence I found this very active forum. I have learned more by reading these posts in the last month than I have over the past 4 years! I notice there are some extremely active members in this forum. The same ones have responded to several of my posts literally within minutes.

How great is that!! :P Many of the decisions I have made over the past couple weeks as I begin to cycle my new tank have directly come from this forum and the members participating.

My point is--I don't give a "diddly-squat" about the money. I do this for my own enjoyment and the enjoyment of watching literally every person who walks in my office and makes a j-line for the tank saying "There's Nemo!!!" "There's Dorie!!!". I would get a lot more mileage handing my wife the money and telling her to go shopping.

They love the fishies and so do I. I just have too many mushrooms and if I let it continue in six months I won't be able to see a piece of rock anywhere--just mushrooms. When I transfer my tank contents, I will do my best to accommodate all your requests. Not for money--but as my way of saying "Thanks" for your help and advice.

I'll need to replace the rocks I pull from the system unless someone can tell me a way to pluck these without destroying them. But other than that, I really don't want any money--Just the help and advice.

Forget the bickering, it's probably just a misunderstanding, and if it's not--shame on you. It's easy to make stupid remarks in an email but picture that person standing in front of you--taking the time to visit this forum because they have a similar interest as you do--kinda changes how you may view this thread.

Think about it--I asked how I could resolve this mushroom situation, Instead of someone telling me a good way to remove them, everyone wanted some, that's ok by me as it ultimately is a solution. I then respond to a couple members who have helped me with numerous questions prior to this thread saying "Hey I'll hook you up with some--don't want no money--thanks for your advice in my prior posts" It would be easier to just ship the mushrooms, afterall, that's how they were brought to me by my LFS. I just don't know how to detach them?

In summary, I would think most of us are in this for the enjoyment of the hobby. Granted it can get expensive but I visit here for knowledge only, not financial gain. If someone takes the time to type out reply for a question I have, I would certainly want to reciprocate that if possible.

This thread made that real easy as it turned out

Take care and for all those waiting on mushrooms, like I said--They "ain't goin' anywhere" I'll be in touch

Oceanic is very proud of their new line of cherry oak cabinets, pumps, plumbing, sump, etc.... I could give a breakdown but I'm not sure I even want to see it! Lighting is very costly also.

Ordered yesterday--ESU setup 3x250W MH plus 2x96w PC. All centrally contained in one housing, Ballast will mount in the lower cabinet. Really not a retrofit setup but will set under the cherry oak canopy. I'll try to upload a pic of this thing--Not sure how.
